DUGA to remain active player in Gambian civil society – Standard Newspaper
The head of the US-based Democratic Union of Gambian Activists (DUGA) has clarified that her organisation is not a political party but will remain an active player in the country’s civil society.
Speaking at the launch ceremony of a Gambian DUGA branch on Wednesday at the auditorium of the Faculty of Law University of The Gambia, in Kanifing (about 7 km away from Banjul), Sohna A.Sallah reiterated her organisation’s commitment to promoting democracy, rule of law and social justice.
Over these past years, DUGA spearheaded a global campaign denouncing the atrocities committed by the former Gambian regime of Yahya Jammeh. The campaigners also staged a series of demonstrations that led to the occupation of the Gambian Embassy in Washington D.C. They also partnered with Dakar-based Y’en a Marre movement to expose Senegalese and Gambian musicians who were singing praises to former President Jammeh in exchange for money.
